Postdoctoral Research Associate Interview
I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at MIT (Cambridge, MA) in December 2013.
MIT media labs contacted me after I applied online. I was extremely surprised that they even considered me. I thought I was fortunate to get this response from them. I was scheduled to talk to a staff member from the lab from the biological side. She spoke to me and asked general questions about my PhD, my interests, computer vision and machine learning. I did OK and I didn't expect a callback as a result.
